What is the PWWB Grilling Challenge?

Our mission here at Plays Well With Butter is to help home chefs cook flavor-filled weeknight meals that deliver maximum flavor with minimal effort. This year we’re picking a new recipe or type of recipes to cook as a community each month, the PWWB Recipe Challenge! In the warm spring & summer months, that can only mean one thing…grilling recipes!

These challenges are designed to introduce you to new PWWB recipes, empower you to tackle new skills & techniques in your kitchens, & to share in the love of flavorful home cooking together. Plus, there’s a chance to win an awesome prize just by joining in on the fun!

Find all of the details for this challenge below. Let’s get grilling! ♡
